Who’s Making Way for Buddy?
On the radio with the man himself, Ron St. Pierre just announced that Buddy Cianci will be joining WPRO. They didn’t mention whom he’ll be replacing, though; I imagine they’re leaving it to the host to tell his own audience.
It may or may not be related, but I caught Dan Yorke making an odd off-hand comment yesterday afternoon that he thought it might be time to start fresh somewhere else. Could he be being pushed aside, or is he maybe discouraged at the changing face of the station? Rhode Island might just be wearing him out. Or maybe the two on-air moments are completely unrelated, and Buddy will slide in elsewhere on the schedule.
WPRO may be moving on from Rush. He’s been hintng at retirement and a local Buddy show could certainly pull better ratings than a national Rush show. Unless Yorke is quitting I don’t see WPRO movig Buddy into that time slot because I don’t see Buddy coming close to pulling Yorke’s ratings. Yorke is very strong.
Bye bye Mr. DiPetro. Don’t let the door hit you on the ass on the way out.
